A slimline cherry & padauk pen hand turned on a lathe in my own UK workshops. A segmented Slimline design with gold-plated trim and the pen barrels hand crafted from two different types of wood padauk and cherry.
With the segmented pen mounted on the lathe and turned too round shape. Once shaped it needs sanding through too 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of thin ca glue applying this is then polished to 12000 grit using Micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. A turned pen with highly polished paduak contrasting against golden cherry.
This ballpoint pen uses a cross type black ink refill available from any good stationery suppliers.
All my writing instruments come in a black presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece a turned wooden pen will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary gifts or Mother’s day gifts.
